  • I use romaine, red leaf, sometimes spinach or raddichio (sp) I add in tomatoes, carrots, celery, bell peppers, olives, and sometimes cheese. There is another version I do where it's mostly broccoli and caulifower.

  • Romaine or other dark colored lettuce. Iceburg is a waste. Eggs, beans, beets, cheese, tomatoes, squash.

  • I almost never buy iceberg... I used romaine, mixed greens, boston bibb (mmm... tender and delicious), or no lettuce at all.

    We eat carrot salad, a variety of whole grain salads, bean salad, italian tomato and mozzarella salad, fresh pickle salad... mmm....

    We put chopped apples, craisins, fresh grapes, slivered almonds, goat cheese, raisins, candied pecans, poached pears, all kinds of chopped veg, leftover rice pilaf, pan fried potatoes, fresh croutons, leftover curry quinoa pilaf... et cetera...into salad.

    We also make our own salad dressing. Sometimes just balsamic vinegar and black pepper, sometimes real ranch, sometimes basil parmesan vinegarette... mmmm.... sometimes just olive oil and lemon juice.
